    1. Santander: Picos, Santo Toribio Monastery and Potes Day Tour

    Depart from Santander towards Fuente Dé at 8:30 AM. Arrive at 10:30 AM where you will be able to take the cable car to the upper station, if you wish, price not included. The ride lasts 4 minutes and will take you to a height of 1,823 m above sea level. Spend about an hour at the top to take in the breathtaking views and explore the station surroundings. If you do not wish to go up, you can walk around. Afterward, visit the Monastery of Santo Toribio, a holy place for Christians which houses the Lignum Crucis, the largest preserved piece of wood from the cross of Jesus. Finally, arrive in Potes, the capital of Liébana and considered one of the most beautiful towns in Spain, with its cobbled streets, bridges and medieval tower, Torre del Infantado. Take a short walking tour of the town and you will have free time to eat and shop if you wish in one of its many souvenir shops.

Had a great day! It is very interesting, the Rafa guide knows a lot, the serpentine road was very good and calm driving. You can go with children, you will like the cable car, a beautiful unusual cave, a beautiful little village where you dined in a tavern, the national dish is very tasty! You can't see it all on your own in a day! We highly recommend it to everyone !! Buenas tardes! Guía Rafa muchas gracias. Día perfecto !!!! Recomiendo a todos. Cueva bonita, picos impresionante .... comida buena !!! Muy amable!

It is a great success to choose this excursion, it is a beautiful route and it is well worth it. Gabriela, very kind, explained everything we needed, curiosities and legends. In addition, we had time to enjoy ourselves at each stop, which is to be appreciated, and she made us a spectacular weather despite the bad predictions that it would rain (whenever we come the same thing happens). Thank you Gabriela for helping us beyond what your job was. We will not hesitate to choose you again if the occasion arises.

Gabriela, the guide, a charming person. He explained everything very well and tried to solve the incidents that came out decisively
